Diablo 3 Darkening of Tristram anniversary event is finally making a return once again this week to let the players experience where the series began.
The yearly Darkening of Tristram event began in the year 2017 and lets Diablo 3 players, both old and new, try out or relieve many of the parts of Diablo 1, including the levels, original events, monsters, and more.
Notably, Blizzard also did release the original Diablo 1 via GOG.com last year for those who want to experience where it all started.
The Darkening of Tristram event is an activity that Diablo 3 players can do in this game, especially for those players who have beaten the primary campaign, including grinding rifts and even joining a season by developing a seasonal character.
The latest season of Diablo 3 is also called the Trials of Tempests, which introduces a unique seasonal ability for players and adds new sets of armor and cosmetic rewards for players to collect.
Blizzard Entertainment made an announcement of the return of the Darkening of Tristram on the official website of the game. According to the announcement, the players will be able to travel back in time to “Tristram’s past” via a portal that they can discover through the game’s Adventure Mode.
Diablo 3 Darkening Of Tristram Event Is Making A Return This Week
Once players access the portal, the game’s visuals will change to resemble Diablo 1, and the players can begin exploring the Tristam of the past.
This time, the very first part of the Darkening of Tristram event will start on December 31, 2020, but the real portal will only be opening on January 3, 2021. This event will run until January 31, 2021.
Apart from the gear that the players will be able to collect throughout all the 16 levels of the event, including several iconic items from Diablo 1, including the Archangel’s Staff of Apocalypse, and King’s Sword of Haste, players will also be able to complete some activities to earn some unique transmogrification effects, portraits, pets, achievements, and more during their time with the event.
Some of the unique rewards include a Red Soul Shard head transmon, a Butcher pet, the classic Diablo 1 resource bar frame, and a lot more.
It is pretty surprising how Blizzard has maintained its content updates and events for Diablo 3 all these years, provided that it was released way back in the year 2012.
